Blue Giant Equipment Corporation

The loading dock and material handling industry has evolved substantially during the last fifty years. So has Blue Giant Equipment Corporation, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in May 2013. By effectively identifying market trends and recognizing product development opportunities, Blue Giant has made strategic decisions that keep the company at the forefront of innovation.

Blue Giant was founded on May 30, 1963 and quickly became a leading manufacturer of dock levelers and hand pallet trucks. The company’s portfolio rapidly diversified over the decades until Blue Giant attained its present position as the premier solutions provider of safe, effective, and technologically innovative loading dock and material handling equipment. The world-renowned product line includes dock levelers (including the industry’s first air cylinder dock leveler), vehicle restraints, intelligent dock controls, seals and shelters, ground-level lifts, and a diverse offering of material handling products.

Fifty years later, Blue Giant continues to expand its product line and global presence. Stocking locations have been opened all over North America, providing customers with quick and cost-effective access to parts and equipment. In 2011, the company entered into a strategic partnership with Big Lift LLC to exclusively distribute the Big Joe brand of AC-powered industrial trucks in Canada. In 2012, Blue Giant launched its U.S. operation, Blue Giant Equipment LLC, as well as a new manufacturing facility in Greensboro, North Carolina which is focused on the manufacture of its Seals and Shelters product offering.

”Blue Giant’s fifty-year track record as the premier dock equipment solutions provider has earned us a worldwide customer base and a solid place at the forefront of the industry,” says Jeff Miller, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. ”By ensuring that our dock equipment technology continues to evolve, we as a company will always be able to offer loading dock solutions that match all applications and site requirements.”
